Nice Sunny Hawaii
Aloha guys. Today, I'm working on my beloved SS and just came in to get a quick bite, so haven't done any search yet. Sorry. At my age, I need to jump on the computer and post whatever I need to ask, otherwise I WILL forget what I was gonna ask if I do this later. Believe me. I will be doing some search after I post this (That is, when I complete my repair).

Anyway, I think I know the answer to this question, but I wanted to get everyone's experience. My parking brake are, for lack of a better word, is kinda loose when step on. Now I know there's a equalizer but it's almost max out on the adjustment. Which usually goes/stretch first? Parking brake cable that comes out from the rear, or the front ones? What is our option for these? Are both still available new, or need to get repro?

As always, thanks guys.

Back to work................

Thanks edward. But with holiday season coming, I need to halt my SS and bike project for a while.

Hopefully, I will be able to come back to these soon.........................
